Sex and A-Levels

Here’s her October 26, 2003 blog entry about the interview, which took place in a cafe:

“So now we have to talk about services.” She pronounced the word like it had 12 vowels: suuuuuuuuuurvices. “Have you done A-levels?” A-levels? Well, yes, but that was years ago. Besides, I was under no impression that academic fluency was a prereq for the job. “A-levels?”

“You know,” her voice dropped to a whisper. “Anal.”

I’m quite sure the waitress didn’t need to refill my coffee right at that moment.

“Oh, right. Yes, I can do that. Provided I haven’t been out for a curry the night before.”

We laughed.

There’s no chance of finding Dr Magnanti on duty in hospital or as a GP: this is medical science, not clinical practice. “I decided against being a medic years ago because, ironically enough, my bedside manner is terrible.”

I missed the story about the famous blogger Belle de Jour when it broke in November last year. I enjoyed the above two samples of her famed sense of humor.
